Streaming and Recording

With all video and audio conferences hosted on our bridges, comes the ability to record them and live stream them using various methods. This is an additional cost and the resulting recorded file can be hosted on our central media storage server (at additional quarterly cost) or sent directly to you.

Streaming and Recording

Please note that all imaging and recording at a Johns Hopkins Health System property and in any clinical space must be approved by (IROC) the “Imaging and Recording Oversight Committee”. For detail about IROC and the approval process please click this link http://intranet.insidehopkinsmedicine.org/iroc/index.html .

Streaming technologies enable viewers to experience audio and video over the World Wide Web. The viewer needs a player, which normally is a plug-in that comes bundled with a web browser, such as QuickTime, Windows Media or RealVideo, or it can be downloaded directly from those sites and installed on your computer. In the early days of the web, audio and video files were downloaded onto your hard drive and then viewed once the entire file rested on your computer. With streaming, the file is not downloaded, and you cannot save it or make a copy of it.
